Another challenge in my reading list this year, and I’m glad I took the chance. Please read on for my review of
The Scarlet Gown
I do not normally read historicals, but this one had been sitting in my to be read list for a long while and it was time for me to read it.
I really don’t know much about historicals, but I liked this one very much. The descriptions of the house and the way it functioned were very good. The amazing clothing selections deserve a mention too. This is a book called The Scarlet Gown after all.
Coming down to the gown itself, when we encounter it, we know it will play an important role. And we are not mistaken. As for the plot, it had a very intriguing, start, but from an early point on, I could predict the ending. That did not stop me from enjoying the book, especially since a few surprise moments were introduced too.
Of course for me, the best moment were when Lucy would show Ralph her spine and challenge him. I have to admit, it’s one of my favorite characteristics to see in a heroine.
All in all, it was a very interesting read and I am sure I will give historicals a small push up my list.
